What if you could search for music that matches your emotional state?
Hume.ai is a research lab and technology company with a clear mission: to ensure that artificial intelligence is built to improve human emotional well-being. The first step in building AI to understand and respond to emotional expressions is to create a system to identify and interpret vocalizations. We created a playful experience to showcase their model in a fun and compelling way. My job was to kickstart with concepting and storytelling to develop the UX and design for dev hand-off.

We wanted to create a visual identity that matches hume.ai yet can stand alone and feel coherent. The emotions were a core of our explorations and were redrawn multiple times to fit their meaning in shape and color.
The experience should also be accessible on mobile, so we translated it to a responsive version that works equally great as on desktop.
